Coronavirus regional insights (Apr 3 – May 3)
This week’s update of the coronavirus video provides insight into regional variations as the pandemic cycle progresses. A hot spot to note is McKinley County in New Mexico, where non-essential travel into the city of Gallup, northwest of Albuquerque, was restricted on May 1st due to the surge in new cases.
The two maps shown in this week’s video highlight regional variations through growth factors and daily new cases:
The map on the left shows the New Cases Growth Factor by US County. This map can be used to visualize how growth rates vary by region. A growth factor >100% (red to purple) may suggest steepening growth, while growth factors <100% (yellow to orange) signal declining growth.
The map on the right shows Daily New Cases Per Capita by US county. Counties in yellow have 1 – 10 confirmed coronavirus cases per million, while areas with no color have less than 1 case per million. (Note that McKinley County, New Mexico, is red, indicating >100 cases per million.) For developing planning scenarios, these areas may be of interest, as they are under the IMHE‘s suggested threshold of 1 infection per million to begin easing social distancing restrictions, while avoiding a resurgence of infections via active case detection and contact tracing.

Data-driven decision making to manage risk in real-time
To assess the pandemic risk, apply the geospatial layers over a schedule or portfolio of insured locations, or a listing of employees. The footprints are available for use in EigenAlerts, EigenProfile Impact Summary reports, and in Exposure Analytics for complete analysis.
- Daily updates
- Users can set Alerts for notifications (and view in the mobile app)
- Intensity value represents number of confirmed cases by best available resolution
Note: The reported confirmed cases are at the country, state/province & county level since 22nd Jan. Also, the reported resolution is of the highest level wherever possible.
